Stolen Goblin Bride Kindle Edition
Esther knows the rules. Don't talk to the goblins. Don't look at the goblins. Above all else, don't buy or trade with the goblins.
Then, one day before market, she sees a young rat faced boy selling a necklace that looks eerily like her mother's, what's a young girl to do? Of course she tries to buy it, but he won't sell it to her. So she steals it because it's her mother's necklace.
Lux knows the rules. He's a jeweler and he can sell his wares to those who want to faithfully buy them. Something doesn't feel right about selling this particular piece to the beautiful young woman who immediately steals his heart. So he doesn't.
But when he realizes the mortal girl stole from him, he's forced to enact magic that can't be unwritten. Stealing from a goblin always has a price.

Esther is constantly told how brave she is but brave really seems to mean simple-minded, as all of her “brave” acts are because she doesn’t realize there’s any danger at all and just is dumb and impulsive.
It reads a bit like what I can only assume furry wish fulfillment fiction by a young teen would read like. I expected more from this author.
There’s insta-love (over and over, weirdly), several moments that seemed inspired by “and then everybody clapped” stories, the worlds longest single day, and some kissing. Clean aside from that, which is good because they might be 11. I honestly can’t tell.
Not a bad story for younger kids, maybe. Skip if you’re older.
I got 46% through this book when I just couldn’t take it anymore. Honestly it read like an 11 year old wrote it about two characters who were also 11 years old. I kept telling myself they were supposed to be adults, but the actions and dialogue kept saying otherwise. She kept calling him “rat-faced boy”. They really did talk and act more like children than adults.
When she’s planning to leave her sister and follow the “boy”, she says how it will devastate her and then in the same sentence basically says, “But I’m gonna go have an adventure anyway.” What?? The boy told her more than once NOT TO BUY THE NECKLACE or she’d be bound to him. The goblin man at the market TOLD HER NOT TO. IY THE NECKLACE or she’d be bound to them. The boy said he could give it to her without a problem, but DO NOT PAY FOR IT. So, she sneaks him a coin after he gives it to her - forces the coin on him. Then, when she’s bound to him, she yells at him for tricking her into buying it. What??
Later he takes her to his tree and then needs to leave for something. He tells the tree to keep her there then climbs out a window. She tries the door, but the tree won’t open it. So she climbs out the same window! I don’t know who was clueless in that one - the boy or the tree - but that was ridiculous. Anyway she just wanders around being completely tstl and angry at the boy when she nearly gets killed because she’s wandering around alone in a goblin land she knows nothing about.
At that point I had had enough. I have never written less than a four star review for any book before but this book felt like a cash grab to me . It felt like an author just threw something down to get it done - or maybe had one of her kids write it for her?
Again, please don’t let this book stop you from trying the others in the series! I’m so excited for boom three by Tara Grace and a later one by Kenley Davidson- two of my favorite authors.
My only pet peeve was word choice when it came to her husband. She often referred to him as her goblin boy. Since no age was ever revealed, the continued references to a boy kept sending him back under the age of twelve in my head. I know he’s not that young, but if he’s going to be a romantic interest, and a husband, please don’t call him boy.
Content: clean (mild language-d word, making out)
This author is incredible for her other works and her world building is usually her strongest suit. I don't think the world building in this one was bad (and it didn't need to be crazy given the whole ideal of the short novel) but the characters really ruined it for me.
If this is your first time reading Emma Hamm, I highly suggest reading her other works. They are definitely worth checking out. This one just didn't do it for me, but maybe you might feel different.
In a way this book reminded me a lot of outlander. (And I mean that in the highest of compliments because that is one of my favorite series ever) Lux was given this bride without really asking for her. But he takes it as his duty to be the best for her. He is just so wholesome and good you can’t help but to fall head over heals in love with him.
I can’t say enough good things about this sweet story! I was so thrilled to finally be able to read about the goblin that stole Freya’s sister away and launched the whole chain of events that takes place in the goblin king books! Thank you Emma for giving us yet another truly beautiful love story.

“No one does. A goblin dance doesn’t have steps. It’s just the music of your soul leaving your body in movements that you cannot control”
This was soo cute! 💐🥰
I loved that Emma Hamm gave us the cute start to the side love story from her series Of Goblins Kings series. The main series follows Freya and Eldridge, this little story follows Esther (Freya's sister) and Lux (a Rat Goblin boy) and how their story started (and how Freya got brought into the Faerie world).
Starting out you see how Esther is an absent minded young woman that had been taught from a small age about goblins and how to stay away from them, but of course she cannot! And, makes a rookie mistake of "bargaining" with a Goblin (even though she was trying to do the right thing). And, then you have poor Lux that gets the brunt end of the stick from the other Goblins cause they think him incompetent and young - getting roped into a old custom of "Goblin Bride" (kidnapping a mortal woman) that he is unfamiliar about and doesn't really want to do it. But, to his surprise when it is time to kidnap Esther, she is more than willing to go.
They have their bumps along the way, but the way Lux adores his Goblin Bride who is a mortal is soo sweet. And, how Esther finally sees Lux as the person under his Goblin traits. Sometimes love is slower and you need to find out who the person is to truly know and love them, especially after you get to know you and yourself.
I found in the end finding who you are inside and being finally happy with YOUR choices on YOUR path in life and love who you want! Even if finding out that who you truly are is completely different from what your parents, siblings, community think you need to be.
And, I love we end when Freya finds her sister!!!
clean and unusual, and again, interesting character development.
